The books get kids and some adults to read which some of them most likely wouldn't read. So i have to give 'em that.

I'm freakin hooked on the things. My wife had read them all, and kept urging me to read them. I just finished the last one a week ago, and find myself jonesing for the next one. This lady can really write some good stuff...I can't wait for the next one...

The movies are pretty good as well.

I think Rowling has fallen in love with her own writing. I wonder how long it took her 10 year old fans to read her last ramblings.

Its all good though, she was probably down to her last $100 million and needed the money. By the time she's done with the series, the actors will all be 35.

Ditto that. It's popcorn for the brain. Filler, but highly addicting...

You see it all the time. As the author gets more and more famous, the editors lose more and more power to change anything. The authors also often get self-impressed with their own writing, and tend to wander alot from the beginning of the book to the end.

Tom Clancy leaps to mind here as a fine example.

I guess I'll be the first one to drop in here and question the sexuality of the Harry Potter fans. Especially beavis.

Oh goody. Another round of book burning by some misguided zealots. It's the Devil's work I tell ya.

Its all good though, she was probably down to her last $100 million and needed the money. By the time she's done with the series, the actors will all be 35.The way the 5th book ended, I doubt many little kids will be reading the last two until they're old enough. A lot of dark stuff coming up, if it hasn't been like that already.

I'll be waiting to reserve this ASAP, although I won't get a chance to read it until July 26th, when I get back from teaching the summer music program at Luther again this year.
